- The Citizens were slammed with a two-season ban and €30 million fine for breaching UEFA's fair play rules

Manchester City could be dealt with a potential point deduction which could get them stripped of their 2014 EPL title as the English champions surge into a massive mess after the UEFA ban.

The Citizens were charged by UEFA for breaching FFP code of conducts from 2012-2016, and should Premier League launch a separate investigation into the same offence, their 2014 EPL title could be in sheer jeopardy.

Should the law take its course, Man City will have to forfeit their Premier League title which they won by a meagre two points from Liverpool.

Meanwhile, the ban could make Manchester City lose some of their important players if they fail to have the judgement upturned through an appeal pronouncement.
